Boarders’ Night In: Country Western Style

By Mrs. Kirstin Coffman, Director of Residential Life

Howdy Partners!

Our boarding students strapped on their boots and put on their best hat to head over to our watering hole (aka the Dining Hall) to enjoy a cowboy-sized meal together. Afterwards, we all gathered in Lindor Hall to enjoy some games, such as donuts on a string, a horse races, corn hole, bottle flipping, balloon popping, and water pouring challenges. Some students braved the karaoke machine and sang to the crowd. We ended the night with our Theatre Conservatory students teaching us how to line dance.

“Planning our ‘country western’ themed night for the boarders was a lot of fun!” said Mrs. Natasja Eksteen, Administrative Assistant to the Dean of Students for Residential Life. “Having dinner together as a boarding family and then playing various games in order to bond and get to know each other better was the main goal. To see the boarders relax, laugh, and dance was really heartwarming. Some even learned a new skill. Great fun was had by all!”
